I’m excited to review the beach inspired August issue of Bead Trends! Especially after just returning from a trip along the beautiful beaches in Southern California. On the cover you will notice a Vintaj Star Fish charm in the Ocean Treasures necklace designed by Marie-Noel Voyer-Cramp. As you turn the pages you will continue to see beachy colors and elements. I would also like to congratulate our friend Amanda Austin for her stunning Designer Highlight feature on pages 47 – 55. Each and everyone of her featured pieces showcasing Vintaj, thanks Amanda You ROCK! My absolutely favorite piece in this issue has to be her SWELL necklace on page 50, it is to die for! Amanda painted one of our Arte Metal Rhapsody Romance pendants the most beautiful teal color. The combination of summery greens and blues with layers of natural brass and copper are gorgeous! Oh and how about Cindy Cima Edwards Sparkling Collage cuff bracelet with some of our fastenables and a Desert Butterfly Decorviet, securing pieces in place. As you can see I can go on forever about all these amazing pieces, but I think I’ll let you take a peek for yourself. . .
